    We saw 3 bald eagles yesterday on a road trip thru se Oklahoma. I don't think I have ever seen one in the wild before. It was cool!

    The bald eagles winter here & we see dozens of them flying and in trees along the Des Moines River. So amazing!! Wish everyone could see one in the wild.

    They're so beautiful! I've seen a few when DH and I go fishing down in the bayous/swamps. Amazing to watch. :)

    How beautiful!
    Right now, I've been watching the bluebirds in daughters back yard going in and out of the bird house. There's about 10 of them and Im just amazed at how pretty they are.
    I don't have any birds on Guam except pigeons, sparrows and egrets. :(

    We saw one just about a week ago almost directly over our house. About 18 miles SW of Fort Smith, AR.

    When I was commercial fishing, oh so many many moons ago!!! we could "call" the eagles and then toss a "throw away" fish off the back of the boat...they would swoop down and pick the fish out of the water. Very cool!!!

    Last summer, while out on the pontoon boat, we saw a bald eagle on a barren tree. I took pictures but nothing that looks as close as yours. How awesome to see a bald eagle!!

    We have seen some in our area. We were surprised, and we took the binoculars and watched up close. It was amazing!

    I live in southern British Columbia and I see them all the time because this is one of their territories and every now and then one will fly over my building. I live right on the Fraser River, so they are always close by, and what a glorious sight to see them in flight.

    I lived on Barnston Island in the Fraser River from 1974-1976. Loved the isolation in the middle of the big city!! Not a lot of wildlife on the island, but the beavers on the mainland side of the river would build dams and flood the road where we got off the ferry.
